   Aspasia Kandros

Our beloved and precious mother was born on October 12th 1926 to Pythagoras and Angelinio Passa, at Mitilinious Samos. She was the youngest of 11 children. She was married to our father Stelio/George Kandros for 63 years (George Kandros sadly passed away on the 24/09/2015. He was buried on the 30/09/2015 at Woronora Memorial Park [Orthodox Monumental, Position 0151]) . She was devoted to our father and to her three children.
Mum, Dad, Con and I migrated to Australia and arrived here in 1964. At the beginning it was hard for her to adjust but eventually she came to appreciate and love the place. Angelo was born June 2nd 1971 and completed our family. Our mother was a hard worker, having worked two jobs and later helped our father and brothers with the family business. Mum was kind, generous and a real hero, a fighter, the glue that held the family together.
We can with honesty say she was an “Angel on Earth” and the serenity of her death and the dignity she displayed is beyond words. Her life has been an inspiration to many people, her strength gave strength to others. Her dignity and suffering even in the loss of our beloved brother in the year 2000 was achieved in silence and she displayed enormous strength. Our mother had a green thumb and loved gardening, she could make anything grow where others failed. She loved her grandchildren and her great grandchildren with all her heart.
We will always love you and remember you. May God protect you and give you eternal peace next to your beloved husband and son.
“My end is my new beginning”.

From Angelo to Mum:
This is a sad day for us but let us remember our Mum, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother and celebrate her life.
Let us not forget that mum is one percent of the population that survives to this age. She was given the gift to make it to her nineties. Let us celebrate the blessing that God has given our mum. She worked, walked, lived and loved for ninety two years of her life on this earth and now she has started her new journey in GODS life as one of his children and an Angel. Our mum showed us how to live with dignity, humility, love for others and respect for people.
Mum we love you and we will never forget you.

Η αγάπητη μας και πολύτιμη μητέρα γεννήθηκε στη Σάμο την 12η Οκτωβρίου 1926, στο χωριό Μυτιληνιούς. Ο πατέρας της ήταν ο Πυθαγόρας και η μητέρα της Αγγελινιώ Πασσά. Ήταν το μικρότερο παιδί από τα έντεκα παιδιά της οικογένειας. Παντρεύτηκε το Στέλιο-Γεώργιο Κάνδρο και απέκτησαν τρία παιδιά και έζησαν 63 χρόνια συζυγικής ευτυχίας. Το έτος 1964 ήρθαμε στην Αυστραλία ο πατέρας, η μητέρα, ο Κώστας και εγώ (η Βασιλική). Στην αρχή ήταν δύσκολα, αλλά πολύ γρήγορα προσαρμοστήκαμε και αγαπήσαμε τη ζωή και τον τόπο.
Το 1971, 2 Ιουνίου γεννήθηκε ο Ευάγγελος και συμπληρώθηκε η οικογένεια. Η μητέρα μας δούλεψε υπερβολικά σκληρά, εκτός από την άψογη
φροντίδα της οικογένειας, δούλευε και δυο δουλειές. Όταν ο πατέρας μας άρχισε δικές του δουλειές τον βοήθησε πάρα πολύ. Η μητέρα μας είχε απέραντη καλοσύνη, γενναιόδωρη καρδιά, μεγάλη στοργή για τα παιδιά της, και αντιμετώπιζε δυναμικά όλες τις δοκιμασιες της ζωής.
Ειλικρινα μπορούμε να πουμε ότι ήταν ένας επίγειος άγγελος. Ήταν σε όλους συμπαθής, γλυκιά στα λόγια της και ευγενικη στους τρόπους της.

Κοιμήσου γλυκειά μας μητέρα και γιαγιά. Θα σε θυμόμαστε και θα σε αγαπάμε για πάντα.

Ο θεός να προστατεύει εσένα, τον αγαπημένο σου σύζυγο και τον πολυαγαπημένο σου γιο, Κώστα.
